Last updates October 1, 2016:There are many ways that homeowners can treat termites. The choice, however, depends on the extensiveness of the damage and the amount of termites present in the structure. There are many companies that provide free quotes and evaluation, so you may take advantage of such companies to estimate the final cost. Termite treatment cost also depends on the type of termite present at your home. More often than not, there are two main types of termites that will invade a home.
The first common type of termite invasion is a subterranean termite, which lives approximately three to four feet from the home. They normally occupy the foundation or the area between the Tesco and the foundation, and leave signs of invasion called mud tubes. To treat such kind of termites, an inspector removes the tubes, after which he drills around the foundation then injecting an organic pesticide into the hole.
The second type of termite that is likely to invade your home is the Drywood termite. They normally invade homes between August and September, and are usually attracted by decaying wood or wooden structures. As such, you should remove dry rot around the home as a means of keeping these termites at bay. They normally leave fecal pellets around floor boards and window sills to indicate their presence. These types of termites may live in your home for up to five years before their presence is felt. But how much does a termite treatment cost?
